Tonight, our Islanders continue their 4 game road trip as they travel to Sunrise to take on Jaromir Jagr and the Florida Panthers.

The goalie match up tonight features Michal Neuvirth making his Islanders debut in net.  Meanwhile, Dan Ellis will be between the pipes for the Panthers.  The Panthers goalie troubles of earlier this week have been well publicized, Ellis is their third string goalie.  They actually held open auditions for their fourth string goalie who will serve as the backup tonight.

The Islanders lineup will see one change tonight as after serving his 1 game suspension, Matt Martin will return to the lineup.  To make room for him, Eric Boulton will go back to the press box.  Tyler Kennedy and Kyle Okposo both joined the team for tonights contest but will not play.
